How to adopt and maintain physical activity in the workplace - Fit at Work

Despite overwhelming evidence of the benefits of regular physical activity, participation remains very low among Canadian adults. To combat this sedentary lifestyle, many organizations across the country are promoting their own workplace activity programs, and unfortunately, have had mixed results. So can these programs work? How can you design programs that motivate your employees to get active, and stick with it? Join Dr. Ryan Rhodes from the University of Victoria’s Behavioural Medicine Lab as he overviews the benefits of regular physical activity from personal health, workplace wellness, and economic perspectives, and what organizations can do to promote these programs among their employees. Dr. Rhodes discusses contemporary evidence for physical activity promotion in terms of cutting edge research on motivation and the mixed effectiveness of incentives in workplace physical activity programs.

The link between physical activity and productivity - Fit at Work

Sedentary lifestyles have a negative impact on physical health, but can they also be affecting your organizations bottom line?

So how can organizations promote physical activity and reduce sedentary behaviours in their workplaces?

The Millennial Labour Movement: Younger Workers and Union Renewal

Unionization rates have stagnated or are falling across the country, especially in the private sector. The future viability and relevance of Canadian labour unions depends, at least in part, on the engagement of the emerging millennial workforce. The challenge for unions—as it is for employers—is to better understand the needs and interests that are of specific concern to younger workers, and those that may differ from other segments of the workforce. But will it be enough? In this new environment, how can union leaders juggle increasing membership in Millennials while also defending the value of unions to workers and demonstrating strength and solidarity to employers?

A traditional annual performance appraisal is an opportunity for companies and organizations to increase the strength and diversity of their talent pipelines.
